Former rice plantation that offers outdoor opportunities and historic interpretation of the property

Caw Caw Interpetive Center guides you through 654 acres worth of history and nature. Part of a former rice plantation, the land was home to enslaved African Americans who applied their technology and skills in agriculture to carve a highly successful series of rice fields out of cypress swamp. Still evident are the earthen dikes, remnant water control structures and canals that today provide diverse habitats to migratory waterfowl, songbirds, deer, otter and alligators. Visitors can experience Caw Caw through the 8 miles of walking trails, interpretive exhibits at the interpretive center and a wide variety of educational programs.
